I'm not sure.  I get the following when executing the first line in
cmd.exe.  The output appears till the line starting with "220".  After
that it does nothing.  When typing `C-c' for aborting the operation
the last lines (starting with "***") appear.

C:\foo>gnutls-cli --print-cert --port 25 --starttls smtp.web.de
Resolving 'smtp.web.de'...
Connecting to ''...

- Simple Client Mode:

220 smtp06.web.de ESMTP WEB.DE V4.107#114 Thu, 21 Sep 2006 22:08:51 +0200
*** Starting TLS handshake
*** Fatal error: A record packet with illegal version was received.
*** Handshake has failed

I am not able to send mail using smtpmail.el in Gnus either.  I am not
sure however if this is the fault of GnuTLS.  The only output after
aborting the operation (which will hang as well) I can see in the SMTP
trace buffer (`smtpmail-debug-info' set to t) is this:

220 smtp.1und1.de (mrelayeu4) Welcome to Nemesis ESMTP server^M
